The story of Lillesand Hotel begins in 1837 when the Irish rebel Robert Gonsalvo Major fled his homeland and settled in Lillesand. He built a bark mill and tannery, in which the oldest part of the hotel has its origins.
The hotel first opened in 1873, when Lillesand experienced its glory days as a shipping town. Since then the hotel has had many owners, and is currently owned and run by local girl Beate Holm Töpfer and her German husband Wolfgang Töpfer under the name Hotel Norge.
The hotel boasts a traditional atmosphere and style, but guests can also enjoy all the comforts you expect of a modern hotel. The rooms are all individual in style, and comfortable furniture in subdued colourways adds to the easy, relaxed mood.
